National Fisherman

AquaBounty, a company that produces genetically modified salmon eggs at a P.E.I. hatchery, has applied to sell its fish in Canada.
 
The company's latest financial outlook reveals it's asking for approval from the federal government to sell its fast-growing salmon as food in this country.
 
The salmon from AquaBounty's genetically modified eggs grow at twice the rate of regular salmon, making them potentially lucrative as farmed fish.
 
The company has said eggs hatched in P.E.I. would be exported to Panama to be grown into market-size fish.
 
The company now says it would like to sell those fish in the U.S., Canada, Argentina, Chile and China.
